Peoria partners with nonprofit groups for new community resource center
PHOENIX – With help from multiple nonprofit organizations, the city of Peoria is getting ready to open its first community resource center this month.
The West Valley suburb’s Community Assistance Resource Center will provide residents with information and referrals for a variety of services, including financial, health care, child development and nutrition.
“This center provides access to opportunities for health, stability, and self-sufficiency, and I’m thrilled we are opening the door to the resources that will assist our residents as they strive to live their best life,” Mayor Cathy Carlat said in a press release.
The program will be housed at the Peoria Community Center at 8335 W. Jefferson St. in the city’s Old Town neighborhood.
A grand opening is scheduled for June 27 at 9 a.m.
The following nonprofit organizations are partnering with the city to provide services at the resource center: Bloom 365, Child Crisis Arizona, Marc Community Resources, WIC, Stepping Up for Seniors, FSL, Benevilla, Arizona at Work, JAG and Medicare Planning Solutions.
“By working with such a wide variety of professional nonprofit service providers, we are able to offer more holistic services and approaches to some of the most difficult issues someone may be facing individually or as a family,” Carin Imig, Peoria’s community assistance manager, said in the release.
